Godiva, Ghirardelli and Lindt Chocolates

Our family has a sweet tooth so we always have chocolates at home. There was a time that we ran out of chocolates and my son said “Mommy, dapat lagi may chocolates sa ref”. “Oh, sorry naman, I’m not aware na bawal maubusan ng chocolates.” Hehehe! 

He likes eating chocolates especially during our review time, pampatanggal stress na rin. So every grocery, I always buy chocolates, it doesn’t need to be imported, Flat tops, Curly tops or choc-nut, masaya na kami. But I’m thankful for my family, relatives and friends who give chocolates. 

Though my husband is always out of the country, I don’t obliged him to buy pasalubong every business trip at nakakasira siya ng monthly budget. I always tell him, only buy chocolates if it is not available in the Philippines. So when he went to Austin, Texas, he sent me photos of these chocolates from Target





He asked me if gusto ko and babalikan na lang niya. Of course, I said yes. I haven’t tried these chocolates pa and feeling ko mura siya compared sa nakikita ko na price sa airport. Now, you will understand, why my son cried when he learned that his dad’s luggage was missing. His toy and these chocolates were inside the luggage kasi so sayang talaga kung nalost siya.

Godiva



I told my husband to buy Godiva chocolates before and he said, “di ba sabon yun?”. Hahaha! Naloka ko bigla! Anyway, Godiva is one of the premium fine chocolates founded in Belgium since 1926. Godiva also offers coffee, cocoa, truffles, biscuits, sweets, dipped fruits and many more. 

My husband bought Dark Chocolate Almond and Milk Chocolate. The Godiva Milk Chocolate is good but my husband said, mas type pa niya yung IKEA chocolates. We haven’t tried the Dark Chocolate yet since we’re not fond of dark chocolate.

Ghirardelli 



We are very familiar with Ghirardelli brand because that is one of our favorite instant brownie mixes. Ghirardelli is the third oldest chocolate company in USA, it offers chocolate in bar version or in mini squares. My husband bought the mini squares, Assorted Milk Chocolate and Milk and Sea Salt Brownie flavor. 



We liked the Milk Chocolate and Milk Chocolate Sea Salt & Almonds. I’m not fond of caramel so the Milk Chocolate Caramel is too sweet for my taste. The Milk & Sea Salt Brownies is a combination of sweet and salty, di ko lang mataste yung brownie. Hehehe! 

Lindt

Lindt is founded in 1845, it is a Swiss chocolatier and confectionary company that offers chocolate bard and chocolate truffles. We tried Lindt chocolates before so I know that their chocolates are really creamy and smooth. As of this writing, naubos na yung Lindt chocolates, I hope next time I can try the Milk and Hazel Nut variant. 



The price of these chocolates is not cheap so it is not something that we can eat anytime we want. What is your favorite chocolates?

  2. I don't even know how to pronounce ghirardelli properly! haha. at natawa ako sa Godiva soap. lol. Kaya pala super cry baby si Ethan! haha. Tapos ikaw, mahilig sa chocolate parin sexy parin! Ako I like chocolates naman pero hindi ung talagang tipong hahanap hanapin, kung meron kakain, kung wala keri lang. di ako naeengganyong bumili sa mga grocery pag nakakakita ako ng chocolate sa display. And Dane and I are the total opposite! They have sweet tooth din, like you! lol.

  3. Naku ang chocolate sa amin ubos agad. Hindi natagal sa ref, we usually have that sa ref para pang tanggal umay. That's new to me, Godiva, i remember the soap. I never tried those chocolates above. We always go for Reese, MM's, Hershey's, Kisses and some more. At mahal din talaga yan no? :)

  5. I love, love, love chocolates! Actually, on my high school yearbook, it even says on my description that I'm a "chocolate princess" because of my absolute love for chocolates. I've been craving more sweets now that I'm nursing and so I make sure I always have some chocolates stashed. Trying not to overdo it though because I don't wanna end up with diabetes!
